Brownies is our section for girls aged seven to ten.
Brownies normally meet on Tuesday 5.45 – 7.15pm during term time.
Brownies work on badges, learn new skills, play games and see friends. They have the opportunity to try adventurous activities and go along to special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays.
All Brownies are sure to try new things and take on a broad range of challenges as they explore the topics that sit within our six programme themes – Know Myself, Express Myself, Be Well, Have Adventures, Take Action and Skills For My Future.
Girls in Brownies are part of a small group called a Six, led by a girl called a Sixer. They make their own decisions about what badges and activities to do next. They work together to explore the world around them and make a positive difference in their community.
Brownies can work towards interest badges in their own time, choosing topics and skills they are interested in and exploring everything from languages to space.
Brownies can feel proud of their achievements with awards for each theme and work towards the Brownie Gold award – the highest award a Brownie can get!

The Brownie Promise is: I promise that I will do my best, to be true to myself and develop my beliefs, to serve the Queen and my community, to help other people and to keep the Brownie Guide Law
We asked the girls what they like best about Brownies:
‘When we help at fates’
‘When we do badges’
‘I like the games’
‘All the trips’
‘I like that most badges help you to learn something’
‘When we made washing-up bowl stands with wood and string.’
